This Thursday's craft is a fun and rustic way to display all of the hard earned collegiate/high school earned garb. Supplies needed are the decorative hanging wooden plaque, the various things you'd like displayed, and small pegs. I used hot glue for mine, but I don't recommend hot gluing yours unless you want it there permanently.
After decorating my grad cap with glittery letters and hot gluing cherry blossom heads found in the floral department at Ben Franklin Crafts, I placed the collegiate sash on my plaque. Once you have that in place, it's time to put any tassels that went around the graduate's neck at graduation down. You may have to coil some of that up inside of the cap. For length, as well as to not disrupt the design on the grad cap I hung the tassel from the cap directly underneath the cap, and displayed the cap at the same angle that the cap would have been viewed while the graduate was wearing it. This is a fun way to show off for the graduate, and can be displayed at Graduation Parties, as well as inside the house for years to come. This is something to be proud of, so make sure to show off!!
There are so many different ways that you can display your favorite graduates mementos!! Happy Crafting everyone!
